Body of Mollie Tibbetts FOUND
The body of a 20-year-old woman believed to be Mollie Tibbetts has been found.
The female body was discovered in Poweshiek County, which includes Tibbetts’ hometown of Brooklyn, Iowa.
DCI spokesman Mitch Mortvedt said Tuesday that he couldn’t comment on any potential suspects in the case.
Greg Willey of Crime Stoppers of Central Iowa, said the fund which included more than $400,000 will now likely be used for any information that helps police catch anyone responsible for her death.
Tibbetts was last seen July 18 in Brooklyn, a rural town of about 1,400 people, as she took a routine evening jog.
Tibbetts, a psychology major, would have started her junior year this week in Iowa City. She was staying with her longtime boyfriend and working while home from school over the summer.
